Jackson Hole Public Art, in partnership with The Center, will produce the 2018 Pavilion Project, as a temporary public art installation for The Center Park. The Pavilion will be a sculpture and an informal, free, and accessible space for the community to practice, perform, and participate in the arts.
Many cities and towns across the country embrace informal gathering and performance areas that welcome creative community. From outdoor theaters, to bandstands and band shells, amphitheaters and stages, these spaces are free and open to the public − inviting serendipity and providing a platform for expression. Imagine the informal uses and innovative activities that might develop in a multi-use space dedicated to expression.
The Pavilion will offer Center Residents, non-profits, and community groups an inspiring place to test free, accessible, gateway arts experiences with the public. A space that supports informal programming will help build future arts audiences, and raise the visibility of the vibrant art making that takes place within The Center, benefitting The Center and its Residents. Located on one of our main transportation corridors, the sculpture will be visible from a distance and will further brand The Center as a cultural destination. The sculpture will exist as an experiential artwork and central gathering space that people can enjoy on their way to cultural activities, markets, fairs, and events located at The Center, on the Town Square, or at Snow King Mountain.
Jackson Hole is a highly creative place, known for our remarkable artists and design professionals who live and work here. The inaugural 2018 Pavilion Project competition will highlight the exceptional local talent of architects, designers, and artists. Ultimately, Jackson Hole Public Art hopes to grow the inaugural Pavilion Project into an annual or bi-annual event.
The Pavilion construction should primarily take place off-site. Designs that use a modular or pre-built approach will be favored. Jackson Hole Public Art and The Center hope to sell The Pavilion to a third party at the end of the display period. The selected artist/team will be asked to share a percentage of this sale with The Center and Jackson Hole Public Art to support future creative initiatives.
